Ealing Single Storey Rear Extension London & Planning Residential Architecture Explore our Step by Step Project Progress to Add a Creative Extension to Your Home
This detached home in Ealing needed a complete renovation and the client specially requested a rear extension to transform their home into a suitable modern-day living place for a growing family. Further, they wanted us to use organic materials that would strengthen this relationship between the exterior and the interior. So, we had to focus on eliminating all the boundaries of the enclosed small rooms. And this is how we wanted to create a large, open-plan living arrangement including the key spaces that the client requested. This particular property had been recently used as a source of rental income. That is why there had been signs of dilapidation and general wear and tear. Thus, overall, this property badly needed a total renovation as well as modernisation. After all, we had to accommodate the needs of the growing family.
While working on this project, the challenge we encountered through our designing process was to keep the existing structure of the property as well as the adjacent and detached garage, while integrating these two elements for a single-storey rear and side extension to develop the perfect interior space for the family. We aimed to eliminate all the boundaries between the small, and uncomfortable spaces. This is how we came up with an open-plan living arrangement. This helped us create the illusion of a more spacious and more practical family home. We extended the place into the garden and added vast bi-fold doors and a large, up-&-over skylight right above the garage link. These allowed natural light to literally flood the ground floor while providing adequate space for large gatherings.
